Peace Studies is a field of social science focused on the multilevel study of violence and conflict in a complex and increasingly interdependent world.
Our focus leads us to a wide-ranging exploration and analysis of the converging crises of our times, from inter-state and civil wars; to state and non-state violence; to terrorism; to poverty, inequality and marginalisation; to the ethical implications of scientific and technological progress; to new forms of governance and international regimes for addressing arms proliferation, climate change and world poverty; to civic participation and democratic innovation; to social movements and global activism; and to exploring social differences around gender, class, race, ethnicity and their implications for building equitable human interactions....

For supporters, this conceptual merger has been central to the success of recent campaigns to raise aid, eliminate debt, address global ills such as landmines and promote human security inside weak and post-conflict states in particular.
For critics, on the other hand, the linking of development and security has unduly securitised the representation of a range of developing world actors and has legitimised a variety of quasi-imperial Western interventions ranging from the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan to pervasive programmes of economic, political and societal reform inside formerly sovereign states....
